Recent graduate Jannic Nielssen from Millikin University in Illinois has launched a site that features the same layout and concept as Kickstarter to help land him a digital career. KickJannic is an interactive social media resume inspired by the crowdfunding site to connect, network and share his resume in a unique way.

Nielssen is a dual citizen of Jamaica and Norway, and has a deadline to receive an employment offer by May 1st or he will have to leave the U.S. KickJannic lets visitors watch and read about Nielssen’s professional experiences and choose from different pledges, from having a custom design made to a full-time employment offer.

Job Seeker Mimics Kickstarter For His Digital Resume

Instead of pledging financially to support Nielssen’s goal, visitors are encouraged to share the site through their own social media profiles, speak and email with Nielssen, ask questions, and help him achieve a position. Nielssen said:

Kickstarter serves as a great metaphor for my situation, from the time limits set on projects, to the people that take it upon themselves to help support and launch something. I hope everyone who helps me manages to feel a part of a community that has helped me reach my goals when the May 1st deadline finally arrives.
